A little Bear update


We wanted to give a little update on Bear. He is out of the hospital and home.
He is having a hard time with his formula (as he has for awhile now). Bear will see the nutritionist this week to determine if perhaps he needs a non-soy, non-milk protein, amino acid formula- or if if there is something else that we can do for him. He definitely has "colic", poor guy. Bear will also have a neurosurgery followup and visit the developmental doctor this week.
Bear is gaining weight really well. That has been the biggest blessing with all the dietary issues. Bear will have appointments with the urologist and then the orthopedic surgeon in the upcoming weeks. He is looking at many months of additional medical care but is WELL on his way to recovery. We can hardly believe he is 12 weeks old already!
Thanks so much to all our friends in Texas, especially Dr. A., her staff, and the medical team in Austin. You were all wonderful and we wouldn't have been able to help Bear without all your love and support! We will do our best to give monthly updates on Bear and his progress.
He has quite a fan club for a three month old.

Eloise Update 02/15/09

She remains in critical condition, apparently her liver has been compromised due to her surgery. They are waiting for it to respond and heal, it has not yet.

Please continue to pray for her.

We got this update for Eloise's host family this evening:

Eliose is critical yet stable. This morning she was unstable, apparently her heart is having a hard time adjusting. she is on a ventilator,and sedated so that she cannot move. they say the next 24 hrs will tell the story, her fever has come down to 101 from 104.

Please continue to pray for her.

Pray for Eloise

Please be praying for Eloise. She had cardiac surgery yesterday and we got word this morning that she is having some complication. Please pray she recovers quickly and without further complication. We'll keep everyone updated.
